about

Sanctum is an experiment in multi-tracking and overdubbing with improvisational drone. The separate performance layers are informed by one another both during performance and mixing. This strategy presented a chance to experiment with stereo space and sonic "negative spaces" by utilizing a pseudo mid-side technique and applying the inversions to the recorded stereo tracks. This experiment was an attempt to develop an empty space in the center of the tracks throughout Sanctum. 

The sounds of Sanctum are produced with the same tools as Meditations. However, the recordings are taken in a live space for a more "true" version of the sonic experience. With the reflections of an acoustic space, the electronic drone performances take on different textures and patterns that are not accessible through direct recordings.

Sanctum is also an album that occurred after the recording, but before the release of Nulla. There is an importance to why that happened, which is discussed on the page for Nulla.
